I seem to have entered my teapot phase again, it's been a while since I made some but I think watching 'Choccywoccydoodah' last month has inspired me again & the multi-tiered teapot cakes have proved popular at the miniature fairs, mainly because a lot of people seem to be re-creating the Mad Hatters' Tea Party scene :o)
I have made a little more progress on my own dollhouse, painted the window frames & doors although I think they need another coat before I start the actual wood effect on them. I have made a little name plate for it which will go on the wall just to the side of the front door when I have finished applying all the 'bricks'. I have decided to call the house 'Casa De Groaza' which is Romanian for 'The House Of Horror'. Most of the inhabitants will be characters from horror movies, but I couldn't think of a suitable mistress that appealed to me. I was thinking maybe Morticia Addams, Lily Munster or even Valeria Watts (Carry On Screaming) as I do want a 'vampy' mistress but then, while flicking through the music channels on tv, I came across Christina Aguileras' 'Fighter' video & knew straight away that that was the image & inspiration I wanted for my mistress character. I have begun working on her already, albeit it's only her boots & legs, but it's a start :o)
I hope you all have a fantastic week, hugs, Kerry.x.
